To the Editor:

I am writing this letter to support the parks and recreation district. Healthy communities need to have healthy activities. As a physician, I have the opportunity to treat many patients who have not pursued healthy lifestyles. The consequences of inadequate exercise are devastating to individuals and society. The healthcare costs to this community that result from lack of exercise are far greater than the cost of supporting a parks and recreation measure.

Dr. Kaare Tingelstad
